Kumasi Asante Kotoko failed to climb back to the summit of the league table following a 1-1 stalemate against West African Football Academy at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium.
Kotoko who had occupied the top spot on the table in the past few weeks lost the position to Accra Hearts of Oak following the Phobians win at Eleven Wonders a day earlier. Kotoko needed the win to propel them back to the summit but a bad day at the office cost them the opportunity to get back their two point lead over arch rivals Hearts of Oak.
Ismail Ganiyu gave the Porcupine Warriors a bright start by dispatching a 2nd minute penalty beyond the WAFA goalkeeper.
Efforts to increase their goal tally met firm resistance from the Academy boys who also searched for the equaliser.
WAFA’s probing got results and that came in the 2nd minute of added time when Justus Torsutsey notched in the all important equalizer.
No side was able to make the difference with a goal in the second half despite a string of good forward forays from sides.
The result meant Accra Hearts of Oak maintain their position at the top of the table with 46 points from 26 matches.
Kotoko are second on the table with 46 points, same as league leaders Hearts of Oak.
WAFA meanwhile are 6th on the table with 39 points. Kotoko will next travel to Dormaa to face Aduana Stars while WAFA will welcome Ebusua Dwarfs to Sogakope.
